Unchained Melody cover (Chet atkins)-VIDEO

Postby Spadaro Paolo » Wed Jul 09, 2014 12:57 pm

Hello guys!!!!!!

This time I have tried to replicate (not without mistakes here and there) the fantastic arrangement of the song

"Unchained Melody" played in harvesting "The Early Years 1954-1955" by CHET ATKINS.


Mr. Atkins also make this great piece using the echo effect.

In the second part backtrack was made by me using band in a box.

I use my Gretsch 6122-1959, however I do not know what guitar Chet used here.

I would like to thank Jack Baker and Larry Kuhns to have transcribed this arrangement.

Let me know what you think

I hope you enjoy it.

Until next time ...............!

Paolo Spadaro.

Nice, with Chet sound to match. I wonder why Chet didn't play the chorus to that lovely tune. Cheers

Chorus intended effect?
Excuse me, but many times do not understand the English-Italian translation. However, if we speak of chorus effect, I think (perhaps I may be wrong) but in the version of the years 54-55 Chet uses chorus and echo together;
while the version with Hnak Snow album "Reminiscing" No, I think the tremolo is used instead.

Paolo,
I understand - my Itialian is not good. Chorus (coro) part of the song and not a guitar effect. I don't know why Chet did not include the Coro. I love what he did. Maybe someone knows.
